For me, it was a semi-sad occasion as it marked my last appearance as a Council Member. Myself and Tony Lee both stood down and were replaced. Our new Treasurer was elected and almost all other positions were unchanged.
The events were overseen by Bob Ellis who was also standing down after three years as Chairman.

A personal joy for me was to have a good chat with novelist Laurie King who was making her first appearance at an SHSL event.
The Society is definitely in good health.
